Bob seconded the motion. Motion passed unanimously.

Pete asked if the total amount owed is on the lien. Merrilee answered yes and explained that it is higher than what shows on the balance due report because we do not enter the lien fees unless we know we are going to collect.

A discussion ensued as to what to do about properties with multiple year liens. Kerry stated that the lawyer's fee to file a simple foreclosure is about $1,500. Kerry suggested that before any foreclosure action be taken that two criteria be met. The first condition would be that the member owed $675 or more for dues, late fees and filing fees for liens. The second condition would be that the owner's equity exceeds an estimated 50 per cent of the current property value.
Kerry moved that these criteria be approved. Pete seconded the motion. The motion was approved.

Kerry distributed the transaction detail by account through May 31, 2012 and the year to date budget update. He noted that the expenses look in line with the budget and that we have collected about 98% of budgeted dues.

Kerry handed out the accountants review and went over the report with the Board. CSPOA received a clean report from the accountant.

Architectural Control: - Bob stated that the ACC minutes would be posted to the website starting in July. He also reported that the tree taken down by Gate 7 was removed by the Brunswick Electric Member Cooperative. Brunswick Electric has the authority to remove any tree threatening a power line.

Bob also reported that we received four applications for the ACC chairperson position. He requested that this be discussed in executive session.

Maintenance - Buildings: - Brent informed the Board that he had received two bids for leveling the flooring in the clubhouse: one from Ramjacks for $4,800 and the second from Advanced Timber Manufacturing for $4,450. Kerry moved that we accept the bid from Advanced Timber Manufacturing and have them submit a contract. Bob seconded the motion. Motion passed.

Brent said that Al had painted the handicap signs and some of the parking spaces.

Mike asked about fixing spot in the clubhouse parking lot where the water pools. Brent suggested having JMG put in a PVC pipe out to road to divert water.

Maintenance - Grounds: - Al reported that he expects at least three bids for the new landscaping contract.

Al met with Ellen Pecina to discuss what should be done with the beds on Persimmon. He asked to put her requests in writing and he and Keith would decide what drought resistant plants should go in those beds.

He said that the picnic area will be cleaned up and the grass cut by Keith before the picnic.

Mike also asked that the flag by picnic area be replaced prior to picnic Al stated that he had ordered two and would put them up upon their arrival.

Recreation - Facilities: - Mike advised that the shower at the pool has been fixed.

Pete said that his inquiry in the last bulletin about the bocce courts got responses for four residents with suggestions on what needed to be done. Pete felt that the repairs could be handled in four parts: replace Boards, new railroad ties for ends, level the playing surface and replace carpet. Kerry felt we should get quotes to fix the courts all at once. Mike volunteered to take on the Bocce Court project. Pete proposed that Merrilee call Brunswick Parks Department and find out who installed the courts in at least one of the county parks.

Brent reported that we recently lost a table and umbrella at the pool. Thinking that it was vandalism he reviewed the tapes and even though the umbrella was closed the wind picked it up and crashed back down onto the table breaking the glass. The replacement tables contain no glass.

Recreation - Social: - Mike announced that the recreation committee was meeting the following evening. The picnic is scheduled for Sunday, July 1, 2012 from 12:00 noon to 4 p.m. Brent said that the new corn toss game was completed and is in the pool shed.

Pete also mentioned that Peggy Adduce, a resident and nurse, has offered to do blood pressure readings at the picnic.

Communications: - Mike advised that the phone directories should be back from the printer soon.

General Advisory Committee: - Nothing to report.

Nominating: - Nothing to report.

Legal Affairs: - Kerry received a copy of the statutes that are applicable to CSPOA from our attorney. Chapter 55 A, which is known as the North Carolina Nonprofit Corporation Act, applies to CSPOA in its entirety. Chapter 47 F of the North Carolina General Statues, known as the Planned Community Act, does not apply in its entirety since Carolina Shores was established prior to 1999. A copy of the memo from our attorney, as well as applicable sections of 47 F and 55 A, are to be kept in POA Office and will be available for viewing by residents on request.

Town of Carolina Shores: - Mike attended the town meeting and discussed how the town was handling the tree removal process on the golf course. Residents should not interfere with the contractors while they are working on the tree removal.

Pete stated that he has been attempting to get the Town to put a dollar amount on the repaving projects for our community as well as at the Village at Calabash. The Town has been reluctant to supply information about paving costs or remaining useful lives for the roads in our community.

Old Business: - Pete brought in a Costco flyer with a security system. He recommended starting with the clubhouse and having it installed by JMG. The decision was made to have Pete order the system.

New Business: - Mike mentioned that the handicap ramp needed to be resealed. Linda will oversee the job. Mike asked if the pavers at the pool needed to be sealed, but Brent felt that they could be power washed with less cost and a better result. A decision will be made after the swim season is over.

Mike suggested repainting the Directors office.

Resident Comments: - None
